But mere hours after he steps through his first portal, Cantor discovers that his job will be more dangerous and difficult than he ever imagined. The realms are plagued with crime and cruelty, and even members of the once-noble Realm Walkers Guild can no longer be trusted. To make matters worse, his first assignment- finding a dragon to assist him on his quest- has led him to Bridger, who is clearly inept and won’t leave him alone.
With the help of his new friends Bixby and Dukmee, Cantor must uncover the secrets of the corrupt guild before they become too powerful to be stopped. But his skills aren’t progressing as fast as he would like, and as he finds himself deeper and deeper in the guild’s layers of deceit, Cantor struggles to determine where his true allegiance lies.

- Get ready to go realm walking! by Matt on 2/12/2014
Refreshing. Exciting. Original. These are words that come to mind when thinking of Donita K. Paul’s new fantasy epic, One Realm Beyond. This book has it all. Thrilling action, tension, and an underlying current of boy meets girl in the dual protagonists, Cantor, the male Realm Walker in training, and Bixby, the female Realm Walker trainee. Realm Walkers teleport through portals, oblong, opal shaped discs that appear, connecting nine worlds. These two are beginning the journey, and entangle themselves with some very colorful and unique characters. The dragons, or Mor Dragons as they are aptly titled in this new series, can shape shift. Without giving too much away, the mention of one Mor Dragon, Bridger, will entice enough to suggest reading the book. He can become a giant horse, a cart, and even a cat. And unlike most dragons in fantasy fiction, he actually has a pet himself. The rest shall be left to intrigue. This is the first novel in the Realm Walkers series. Having read much of Donita K. Paul’s other works, this superior entry by far surpasses her previous entries. And they are all classics. The true emphasis should be placed on the connectivity of the storyline in this novel. The characters are well woven together, and towards the end, when a Primen Warrior shows up, the fun only amplifies. This book is a must read. Take it from me, after the first page, you’ll eagerly be realm walking with the rest of them!
